Mansfield Hospital earns Primary Stroke Certification

​We are proud to announce that OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital has been certified as a Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. Primary Stroke Center certification recognizes those hospitals that follow best practices and the most updated standards of care for stroke patients. These Centers make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke survivors and their families.
OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital joins OhioHealth Marion General Hospital, OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and OhioHealth Doctors Hospital as Primary Stroke Centers. OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital is a Comprehensive Stroke Center.
This certification is a strong opportunity to re-position OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital from a stroke network site, to a full-service program with comprehensive neuroscience offerings, including 24/7 stroke care. This work allows us to keep care local, and serve as a meaningful resource for the communities we serve which include Richland, Ashland and Crawford Counties where we treated 180 stoke patients last year.
Congratulations to our Neuroscience program team for all their hard work in elevating our regional stroke program.

In response, they have developed the attached documents to guide EMS through the steps needed to provide naloxone in such a situation.
